Gambit 4 v Ashfield 4   24.10.17

Gambit 4 had a nice 4-1 win over Ashfield 4 on the same night (very nice fixture scheduling by Robert Richmond). Dick was under pressure from Trevor Lewis but Trevor made a mistake which allowed a mating attack. Peter outplayed Peter Clarke winning material on the way to a mating combination. Derek dropped a pawn in an equal position v Richard Dyce but the players agreed a draw. Mick H was winning against George Heath but lost a piece; however he was able to hold on for a draw. Maggie beat Ric Dawson with a potentially mating attack which resulted in the win of a piece.  ( Report from Gambit website. Thanks to Drag and Derek.)

Result  Gambit 4 Ashfield 1 (Gambit 4 had a  strong top board pairing of Dick Edwards and Peter Goecka -Marshall who have experience of competing at a higher level.)
